The City of Dixon understands that quality of life begins with having a good job.  The City also understands that the health of our local economy is dependent upon a dynamic and growing primary employer base.  As a City, we are committed to increasing opportunity for Dixon residents by supporting small business and facilitating employment growth--resulting in an expanded retail and property tax base.  We also want to expand the opportunity for Dixon residents to work in Dixon if they choose to.

Dixon provides an ideal business location with excellent transportation access and a small town character where you can make as much of an impact as you choose.  Dixon is located along Interstate 80, ten minutes from Davis and the world-class University of California Davis campus, 30 minutes from Sacramento and Sacramento International Airport, and a little more than an hour from the San Francisco Bay Area.  This strategic location places Dixon in a very desirable position--able to meet the needs of technology and biotech companies needing to find an affordable place to grow their business;  as well as those of manufacturing, logistics, ag-tech and food processing companies.
